4 Great Reasons to Upgrade Your Bathroom
Bathroom renovations make a huge difference in how much water you use, but most homeowners don’t think they can afford to make these renovations or upgrades. The good news is that you don’t have to replace bathtubs or showers and rip out tile to make a difference. In fact, these changes only address the aesthetics of the room. They do nothing to save you money, which is what the best bathroom renovations often do.
- How much time do you spend getting ready in the bathroom each day?
- How much water do you use?
If you have old plumbing fixtures, chances are you’re using more water than you think you are.
Your Faucets & Showerheads Drip All The Time
Leaky showerheads and faucets waste a good amount of money every year. Did you know the EPA estimates that homeowners waste, on average, as much as 10,000 gallons of water on a yearly basis?
While there are a handful of things that contribute to water waste, leaky faucets contribute their fair share. If you have a leaky faucet or showerhead, you’re wasting water and paying more money each year. Our 24 Hr. Emergency Plumbing experts recommend that you replace your old outdated fixtures as fast as you can.
Your Fixtures Have Lost their Luster
Metal fixtures are easily inclined to rust, especially in bathrooms where the air is humid. When you have a good amount of moisture in one area, this often leads to condensation on faucets and showerheads.
After several years, metal fixtures start to look worse from years of use, they develop rust spots and other blemishes. It’s not just faucets and showerheads that look this way. Supply lines, more than ever, those behind the toilet, rust as well. If your fixtures appear dingy and dirty and can’t be cleaned, think about replacing them.
You Want to Improve Your Water Conservation Efforts
If you’re looking for ways to use less water, think about replacing old fixtures with new energy-efficient, water-saving fixtures. You don’t have to change everything at once. Start small and replace fixtures one by one.
For example, start with installing a low-flow showerhead. Following that, consider installing no-touch faucets. These faucets are not only sanitary and use less water, but they are also available in many styles and finishes to go well with any bathroom.
You Are Preparing to Sell Your Home
When you put your house on the market, you want it to sell right away and at a great price. One way to do this is to make sure the bathrooms are nice and clean. Buyers want to purchase homes that don’t need a lot of upgrading. When your house has the newest technology and finishes, especially in the bathroom and kitchen, this gets people’s attention and makes your home more compelling.
